tv Way Too Early MSNBC December 2, 2013 2:30am-3:01am PST
>> good morning. my clothes are feeling tighter. i know it's cliche, i definitely had my fill. time to hit the gym today or whatever you do. we have an he can check tick mix for you. we have a coffin company selling itself with naked women. i'll explain that later. or lewis will, actually. we begin with an update on the train derailment in new york. stretches of the commuter rail line are closed this morning after the deadly crash yesterday. we have new video just in of crews already back on the scene to get the trains uprighted. four people, of course, killed. 63 injured. 11 in critical condition. early morning commuter train
traveling south from poukeepsie, new york, to grand central station derailed in the bronx. 100 people were on the seven cars which came to a violent stop just short of the nearby river. the train was only about 12 miles from the destination. a lot of people, frankly, at that time in the morning dozing off when the cars tumbled off the tracks. >> as we were going over, i looked at my two and i screamed. we're going over. i couldn't believe it. i was in shock. >> i just felt the jerky moment. that's when everything happened very, very quickly. we saw the woman in the front of her go off through the other window. her glass broke. she hung on to the side rails like a monkey. and while the train was flipping and rocks were coming in. >> among the dead, donna smith of newburgh, new york as well as a member of the nbc news family, jim lovell who did audio for the
"today" show. three victims were thrown from the cars. rescue crews had to use air bags to physically lift parts of the train to free survivors trapped underneath. an official from the mta says the train operator reported the train was going too fast into the turn. according to "the new york times," the operator tried a last-ditch effort to slam on all of the emergency brakes. the train's conductor and engineer have both been hospitalized. federal investigators found the black box and will use it to determine exactly what went wrong. it is worth noting a freight train headed northbound derailed along the same curve back in july. buses helping get commuters to work this morning after the thanksgiving holiday. 26,000 people use this particular line to get in to the city. you're looking at live pictures of the scene. of course, they're getting the trains uprighted and getting them out of there as the investigation continues at both the federal, state, and city level. let's turn to washington.
white house officials are announcing they have met their deadline from improving healthcare.gov saying it will work smoothly for the vast majority of users. the repair team made 400 technical fixes and says the website with host 50,000 people at the same time. the obama administration also says the site is stable more than 90% of the time. healthcare.gov far from perfect. "the new york times" reports insurance companies are still not receiving all the information about individuals who sign up for coverage through the exchanges. and that creates a logistical nightmare for these guys. they need to track down that additional data and in some instances the insurance companies have no record that consumers signed up for coverage at all through the website. but former adviser to president obama david pluf insisted obama care will be viewed as a success even if it doesn't happen until after the president is out of
office. >> this program was designed to be implemented by the states. in most of the states running our exchanges is going quite well. you talk about medicaid. i think it's just a fact that it may take until 2017 when this president leaves offs, you'll see almost every state running their own exchanges and expanding medicaid. i think it will work really well then. >> let's fast forward to the state of the union and months after that. a lot of people signing up, economy sting continuing to strengthen. i think americans confidence will recover. >> a slew of international news to get to. start in afghanistan. american officials denying accusations from president karzai that the u.s. is withholding supplies to gain leverage in the negotiations between the two countries. karzai and his national security council say they believe the u.s. has cut off military supplies and fuel deliveries in order to pressure afghanistan into signing that new security agreement. u.s. embassy officials say that is simply not true.
the u.s. government seeking a new deal to keep american troops in afghanistan beyond 2014 but president karzai listed a set of conditions that must be met before he disagrees to an extended u.s. military presence. let's go to other overseas stories. thailand, overnight the prime minister vowing to open every door for talks with protesters demanding resignation. about 30,000 demonstrators taking part in what they call a people's coup. police have been using tear gas and water cannons to keep the protesters at bay. some of whom stormed the state television headquarters. the chaos forced the prime minister yesterday to flee a police compound. the critics say if you don't know the situation that her government is still controlled by her brother who the military removed as prime minister way back in 2006. at least four people have been killed in the clashes so far. there is also major unrest this morning in the ukraine. hundreds of protesters -- excuse me, hundreds of thousands of people taking to the streets to
find a government ban on protests. police use tear gas after crowds attacked the office of the country's president. the protests are in response to ukraine refusing to sign a trade deal with the european union which would have weakened the ties with russia. there is also video that appears to show police intentionally attacking a news crew that was covering the protests. euro news says the camera man suffered head injuries and all of his equipment was destroyed. it was something of a symbolic victory for supporters of mohamed morsiment they took control of the square in cairo. they were forced out by police. they've been holding daily protests demanding that morsi return to power. protests intensified after they also banned protests and demonstrations without government approval.
the death toll has climbed this morning in the deadly police helicopter crash in scotland. today crews begin the grisly task of sifting throughout wreckage again. the aircraft came crashing into it on friday night. among the dead, the chopper's three crew members. officials say more bodies could be inside the building. it's not really clear what caused the crash. apparent lit helicopter was turning from an operation when it went down. churches across the country filled sunday to remember those killed and the dozen injured as well. let's turn our attention to the business world. the holiday shopping season in full swing. wall street by the way on friday logged the third straight month of gains for november. stocks were mixed on the day. now for the month, the dow gained 2.6%. the s&p 500 up 1.9%. cnbc's steve sedgwick is live
for us. >> that session on friday was on the retail sector. americans were in full spending. it was a black thursday than a black friday as well. 32% of americans, 45 million shoppers were shopping on that day. overall, 141 million americans expected to have shopped over the weekend. but there is a but, they were spending less money. $407 per person rather than the $423. overall, 2.9% decline over the weekend. spending but a lot of hope on cyber monday. elsewhere, comcast owner of our channel, of course, adding new technology to basic video on demand service. they are building new ads on old episodes. that could increase revenue from video owe dune manned. >> people are experimenting all over the place with drones. looks like amazon, we saw dominos try to deliver pizza
with drones. maybe amazon is expecting to deliver the goods via drone. tell us all about this. >> this is about the octocopter. what they're going to do send small packages and most of the packages are below 2.3 kilograms from distribution centers to customers. this will be a 30-minute service air, prime air. a amazon prime air is the service. i was skeptical about it. i think i'm going to give baez yoez credit for this onement he says this could be up and running within a couple years or so. >> he has to get approval. there are jokes on twitter, you better watch out for the fedex and ups guys trying to shoot the drones out of the air because it will take their business away. thank you very much. we will see you tomorrow. let's go back to the weekend. in case you missed it, sorry, we have to show you yet again the finish to the iron bowl on saturday night in auburn. >> 56 yarder.
no, does not have the leg. and chris davis takes it in the back of the end zone. he runs it to the 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, there he goes! >> oh, my gosh! >> davis is going to run it all the way back. auburn is going to win the football game! auburn is going to win the football game! >> i was trying to describe it to my 6-year-old what exactly happened. it was not an easy thing. just an incredible game. and we obviously love sports here on "way too early." so we thought we would ask via twitter today, name a game that was as good or better than that in any sport. you had that finish at the end and the number one team in the country went down. we may be able to show a clip later in the show. coming up on the show, by the way, updated bcs standings are in. you know obviously alabama not on top. where are they? and might they come back into the mix at the end?
ron burgundy, he took a san diego experience to a real north dakota broadcast. he played it straight and made everyone a little bit uncomfortable. i don't think they had a question mark in the prompter. that story and a check on weather when we come right back. so ally bank has a raise your rate cd that won't trap me in a rate. that's correct. cause i'm really nervous about getting trapped.

time foresports. giants visiting washington sunday night football. new york trailing in the fourth. the handoff. gets second effort. his knee wasn't down. now watch this. how about this? they're driving with two minutes to play. rg-3 finds pierre garcone. run ref signals to most chains. washington thinks it's first down when it is actually third. griffin looking for fred davis. he can't hang on to the pass.
and now instead of second, it's actually fourth. right? and then the next play, you know, shanahan is going nuts. doesn't know what's going on. they're going to end up in the next play. they're going to have a fumble and they lose the ball. i think that was a dropped pass. bottom line is that they thought they had more downs and they didn't. and this end up losing the game 24-17. the most unbelievable in term of offensive performance is yesterday. kansas city at afc west rematch with the broncos. all right. no shawn moreno. i have never seen that kind of volume of tears before. i mean that's in super slow motion. but he is intense. i mean -- >> is he all right? >> i think so. he is just passionate about his country. peyton manning, i think incredible day, by the way. eric decker for the third time. manning has five touchdown
passes. >> against the best defense in the nfl. >> and some of the passes were just beautiful. all right. houston, patriots against the texans. >> nail biter for you, buddy. >> it was. nine yards score. they take the lead. fourth quarter, game tied at 31. new england, they'll kick the game winning field goal. a big one. i think it was a 53 yarder. texans lose ten in a row. bill, there was a little controversy here. after the game texas defensive end antonio smith telling reporters the patriots knew what to expect from the houston defense and there may be something fishy going on. i'm suspicious, i think it will be a big coincidence if that just happened by chance. i don't know for sure. i just know it was something we practiced this week. of course, our producer of show is a jts fan that harkens back to -- >> on defense? do you know what a defense is going to do?
that is silly. >> my favorite teams are not above a little skepticism. >> how about rob ford making an appearance at the falcons-bills games. i'm sure there were quite a few of people trying to take selfies. ate chicken wings. one fan tweeted that ford actually stole his seat. as for the game, the falcons snap a losing skid after a field goal in overtime gives them the 34-31 victory over the bill. the nfl expected to announce a punishment for mike tomlin. take a watch on this. he stepped on to the field as jacoby jones was returning a kick on thursday nice. he may have caused the ravens a touchdown and could cost tomlin some money and the team possibly a draft pick. take a look at the slow motion herement a lot of people claiming he was looking at the jumbotron. he said he didn't know what was going on the we'll see what happens:how about the bcs a major shake-up?
florida state and ohio state are undefeated. alabama is number four behind auburn. and missouri rounds out the top five. it looks like florida state and ohio state. >> sec championship, missouri verse auburn, who had that? >> listen, i'm sure scarborough is going to talk about it. >> oh, sure. >> it was an incredible finish. >> joe was classy about it if you follow hill on twitter. he wasn't that upsetted about it. he congratulated his team for a good season. >> that's a good political move. >> so we ended hurricane season. it just finished up as we went into this weekend. it was a remarkable season. actually had a number of storms. they're all weak. we only have two hurricanes. fewest number of hurricanes going back 30 years. and no major hurricanes for the first time in 19 years. and the u.s. had been hit by a major hurricane since wilma in
2005. we finally have a break. sandy was bad enough last year. we have a big warmup. this first week of december and much of the east coast, there is a big winter storm heading for the northern plains. the northern rockies and central rockies are great, but we're nice and mild in some pomany sp today. now we're worrying about a white christmas. >> outdoor wedding on saturday which was very difficult. and thn sunday i was walking the dog -- >> who planned an outdoor wedding -- >> it was very pretty but very, very, very cold. and the bride had a strapless dress on. she was beautiful. >> hand warmers. >> a lot of hand warmers on. coming up, the latest on the train derailment in the bronx. investigators believe speed played a role but was it mechanical failure or human
